I sent to a friend of mine an RW to copy something on it.
When I got back the disc,I was unable to copy the content onto my
HDD. I ran it through DVDShrink and Decrypter,both of them stopped
at the same spot (but if You get around that spot,it continued to
play on Powerdvd and standalone).
I receive more and more discs like that from different sources on
different quality media. I do not have the time nor software to
scan through these disc,but I did notice that checking them with
"DVD Identifier" it instantly gave information about errors (see
the report below on a SONY DVD+RW). If it says 'ERROR',I can not
rip the disc. But it also says: "Read Method 2 completed without errors".
Is there a way to retrieve data from these discs?
